Yay, my eyes were right, she turns out to be a interesting character design. Hopefully since she appeared again and is given a name, she will have an actual role or atleast join Aruto's harem.

Now for the actual episode, one thing that made less sense (somehow) than normal is how Akane's problem is resolved. I don't remember if it was same way that other Alice user's problem got resolved, but its silly. It's nice and all they don't rip/destory the story but just giving it back somehow makes everything a-ok? Hows that solve her hatred of Alice? If Aruto was one fifth of a proper protagonist like Onizuka or something, he would read the story, find her sister, and do something about her sister to fix her prejudice/misunderstanding. But thats asking too much.

Can someone explain the stories to me? I know they're collecting other peoples stories and from what I can understand, when the key enters, it's revealing the life story of the person up until that point? When all the pages are in the book and they are looking through the pages, at what point are they able to know which chapter it is they're supposed to be keeping?

Spoiler:


But I don't quite get one line cited by Kirika-sempai saying that Akane's power is stronger based on theory that Andersen's stories are very well known but fewer have been read.

Spoiler:


P.S. Kisa's lesbian and otaku-ish devotion for Kiraha should start to scare Art.

Kiraha thinks of Onii-chan = Kisa burning Onii-chan into flames.

A little more character introduction, it seems. Little to do with story development, though I find the episode a little interesting.

Meh...I seriously hope the next one's going to dabble more in development of plot and characters that are currently introduced already.

Episode five actually do a little plot introduction for Takion, although disliked much putting Art's daily routine to visit Therila and not gaining more insight information about her character except that she was a frail girl that loved Takions' stories.

Spoiler:


This episode was somewhat dark and gloomy in mood and scope in comparison to the previous ones in particular how it ended.
Spoiler:


Good that this episode didn't end in the usual fashion.

Ep5 definetly suprise me. I thought Kagihime was just another fanservice type anime with a light heart story. But the way Takion is introduce puts this show on a whole new light. Hopefully they built on that and not turn back make Takion just misunderstood character. Considering this was suppose to be my guilty pleasure series, if it turns out Kagihime has a real story i would to find another guilty pleasure series.

So~so episode. The plot development was that Takion lived for 80 years without changing his appearance, same thing with Riddle (except for having longer hair). So this brings up what exactly are they. Alice Users? The queen? Or an author/writer?

And now the important part... they used the most interesting Alice in the ED for a whole half a minute (The gothloli girl with long yellow hair with braids). Bah humbag, atleast the girl of the episode, Therila is interesting too.

Come to think of it, if Takion is a 'main villain' or something, I wouldn't say that the handling of his character went very well. Different from all those villains shrouded in the shadow, maybe, but more importantly, we don't even get to see an inkling of what his intentions are. Random shots with the twins and him saying a few random things...Hardly adds up.

The next episode though, makes it seem as though one of the twins will meet Art and Arisu, so maybe we can finally get a few explanations what the heck the gang with Takion wants.

ep5 was definetely good one I like the mood story gets and I eagerly awaiting ep6 ^_^ If every opponent is somehow unique than it could be good show after all.

I can't wait for OST to go out since the music is brilliant.

But episode 6 was truely the first episode that did not suck in every way.

the plot is moving forward. and i wonder what will happen next...

Hmmm... well maybe you should pick a different series to watch then.

From the manga I was expecting/hoping for a little more actually.

Try Binchou-tan, it's a sweet little anime, and if it ever ends up having any ero-service in it, even the loliest of otaku would burn the studio down.

Hopefully they bring more out more of the real storyline. I will be glad if the story turns a t least a little dark.

I dunno, after watching it, I find it rather bland. Too much fan service is definetly what one notices first. Personally, I've grown tired of the forbidden feelings between a brother and sister cliches. It's a dull, deaden horse that's been ridden over it's needed distance, then shot and dragged even further.

The girl's who is totally obsessed with Kiraha borders on 'creepy stalker' obssession. For the sake of buddha's abundant belly, she bakes cookies with Kiraha's facial expression!

Then, there's the whole, 'I'll stand back and watch you fight, risking life, limb, and mental health' thing with the male protagonist! Can these male harem guys be anymore useless. I think a couch would've made a better protagonists here than what-his-name who is obssessed with Alice. Keep in mind that if these girls lose a battle, they're practically being mind-raped afterwards! And he just stands there in the background and then has the audacity to jump into the fight after it's all said and over saying, "I won't allow you to do this. It isn't right!"

I keep wishing for one of the girls to jam one of their inventive weapons up his arse just so he can at least have something in place of that spine he doesn't have! There's being a total wimp who avoids confrontation at all costs and a person who is nice. Alice-lover here ain't the latter folks.
